Well, not that it matters much at all, but in the interest of JOTS's curiosity, after my efforts last night to capture some Keith's piano playing of 72, and finding myself pleasantly entertained, I made the leap this afternoon to revisit the Winterland, Nov, 73 Boxed Set, and have just realized, though defn a different "Jerry Style" relative to my beloved 68 (duh), the DS--Eyes--CDoll from dk 9 is really nice...I even detect a more than appropriate Donna contribution. And though KG is not the piano-esque contributor we spoke of yesterday (as in Euro 72), he is certainly an important contributor to this new, WotFlood-esque sound.

Nothin the rest of you didn't already know, but having set aside for some many months, I was a bit more impressed than the first time around.

advanced my man not fallen. Dark Star Eyes China Doll from 73 is one of my all time favorite Dead moments and 11-11-73 is right up there, if not at the top close. If it helps, think of them as different bands. NOTHING and I mean NOTHING takes the place of what and where the Dead can take me, but that doesn't mean there aren't other bands that can take me other places.

hey Tell, now take a leap into the nut-case factor of 1973. Keith is in on it. Here is one of the sickest moments of 1973. Truckin' - 12:10. We have muffed lyrics at 2:35; Phil solo at 9:10 w/ cherry bomb explosion; and all the whacked-out NYC and NJ dead-heads after midnight celebrating Jer's b'day, including yours truly. These were some of the most electrified moments of my life. Truckin' is no big deal, but this epitomizes how sick 1973 was.

How the heck did I get into the middle of JGB?

get your tix right here

Rasta said they put on an outstanding show
JGB tomorrow night at The Aggie - in Ft Collins, CO

Glad to hear it, Tell. The reverse happened to me a number of months ago - wasn't listening to much of '68, although not out of distaste for that era; just because I was intensely into 73 and 77. The recent RT incarnation has certainly re-established that part of my dead appetite.

Really take your time with '73 this time around, would be my suggestion... It's not as intense in a lot of ways as the earlier era, but the payoff is, in some sense, a bit deeper. DP28 has a special place in my heart; the DS > Eyes > Half-Step is a great combo, and the Truckin > OO > Eyes > Morning Dew should have been sent up with the Voyager. The Winterland box set is fantastic also, of course (if you haven't listened recently, the playin' sandwich from 11-10 is one of my all-time favorite medleys). If you're up for it, take some time to (re-?)visit 12-6. The 43 minute Dark Star is out there, but if you're in the right head space, is very unique and enjoyable.

Have fun!

I knew it!!! First reading '73 reviews now listening to '73 shows!! How is Miss D. taking this transformation?

While you have the box out, check out Disc 5. WRS, PITB>UJB>Dew>UJB>PITB. My favorite disc of the box.

I myself listen to nothing past 74 so a progression like this is fine by me.

Well, there you are my little web sweetie; given how little we were hearing from you and Rob I was worried for a bit...all of his "Bwahhh....ahhh!" and such.

I had myself a little holiday....just me, my iPod and some very large mini bar bills.
